Last night, pop troubadour Ed Sheeran took to the Pyramid Stage to close Glastonbury 2017.
Millions of people tuned in all over the world to catch the singer-songwriter working his loop pedal magic during his famous hits.
But there was something that viewers picked up on towards the end of the set.
It wasn’t Sheeran, nor his loop pedal. It wasn’t the fact he replaced about three acoustic guitars. It was the crowd.
Illuminating Sheeran, the packed audience could (almost) all be seen shining the torches on their smartphones.
How the fuck did they have any battery left?
Impressed with the amount of people with enough battery still left on their mobile phone to hold them in the air during Ed Sheeran's set!

The amount of people at Glasto who still have enough phone battery to hold up a torch for Ed Sheeran is mightily impressive
